ahead to the fiscal cliff. john boehner has reiterated that the newly elected house republican majority is opposed to raising tax rates. they're willing to accept new revenue under certain conditions. what is your reaction to that? despite the pledge that most of them have signed? >> if we had a recovery the strength of reagan's recovery, there would be 10 million more americans at work today. but we take rate in's path of less spending and regulation, -- reagan's path of less spending and regulation, he has a million more americans at work today than obama does. i would rather have his recovery and all the revenue that flows from that. if you grew 4% a year instead of 2%. the difference between growing from 4% instead of 2% is $5 trillion in additional revenue to the federal government. nobody is talking but raising taxes $5 trillion. why not focus to reduce rates, have lower taxes, it to get more growth. you actually net more additional revenue. >> it seems like john boehner is now willing to get that revenue not just from the economic growth that is not scored by the congressional bu
to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. chris: but john boehner is holding firm against one of the president's main campaign pledges. >> everyone wants to get our economy moving again, everyone wants to get more americans back to work again. raising tax rates will slow down our ability to create the jobs that everyone says they want. chris: in your book, the price of politics, a heck of a book. you talk about how debt negotiations fell apart the last time, we tried it in the summer of 2011. will the speaker, we just saw, have the strength to lead his party even if he has to fight for the tea party? >> their camouflage is tax reform and they're going to do that over time. so the rates could come down. the really interesting thing is when you examine the detail of this, last year they were close. they actually could have worked out some agreement and it blew up because of the president asking for more revenue and that was the limit for them. i think it is a moment of necessity to a certain extent. they can't avoid this now. chris: reporting challeng
romney in a minute, but first listen to what john boehner said after the election. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. let's rise above the this function and do the right thing for our country. >> later john maynard told diane sawyer he is the most reasonable, responsible person -- john boehner told diane sawyer he is the most reasonable, responsible person in washington and the president knows that. the fiscal cliff looms at the end of the year. will we reach a compromise before then, charles? >> i do not think it will be a comprehensive compromise. i think they will be able to patch something together. i think they will be able to agree on it true tax reform sometime next year. i think they will get passet the cliff if -- the cliff. if he insists on raising rates, he will be stymied. >> what is the message? >> it is a mixed message. i think we all agree the corner stone of the president from message is we raise taxes on those earning over $250,000. mitt romney pledged toepea obamacare. these are the esse
country. >> i want to follow up that question and ask neera real quick -- john boehner expressed openness to reductions in spending, reforms, but not structural changes, not ending the federal entitlement to medicare or medicaid, as the ryan budget would do. where do you think that goes after the election? >> i think the president really crossed the rubicon there by putting medicare and medicaid on the table. neera mentioned the budget -- hundreds of billions of dollars in cuts. romney tried to put it back in. i thought it was very ironic. social security? no, it has not been on the table. i think he has already done so and i suspect he will continue to. >> one of the interesting things about that -- we will go to the audience in a minute -- think of the context. medicare is one of the policies that transfers resources down the generational ladder. from the retiring baby boom that is 80% white and moving it into an uninsured younger population, it really in many ways -- the federal government has $700 per capita, something like that -- is striking that under such explicit attack, for kind
to retire. i think mr. john boehner wants to work out a deal. i really do. he has to get through. kantor and some of the others on the extreme right. -- eric cantor and some of those on the right. i do not like the extremism. it is not helpful to the country at all. host: thank you for the call. we read this at the top of the program. on our twitter page, there is this -- nancy cook puts it this way. "game of chicken." her answer, probably not. george is on the phone from the line for republicans. caller: i just think when the voters spoke on the past election that we as citizens are being shortchanged. we vote our -- our constituents voted for representatives, but we are not being represented. in the last 30 days of the campaign, i decided to be an independent. i was not convinced everybody was being fairly treated with the tax cuts. therefore, i believe speaker john boehner, rip cantor, reid, and the president to sit down and realize we elected them to look out for our best interests. what we do not get that, you get the backlash you got on the last election. host: a couple of other op
'm listening to the two of you, i've never been more hopeful about this problem getting resolved. john boehner made conciliatory comments last week and the president made conciliatory-- >> i think ben was saying on the tax issues raising on the rich, debate how much he's going to raise that. he said he wouldn't bend. >> go ahead. >> but that's not the only issue and that's not the only way to solve the problem. so, they will come together and have the solution in the next few weeks. >> boy, i'm glad somebody's optimistic about this, i'm not sure i am. >> i am. >> what i hear people-- >> what do you fear happen? >> there's an unholy alliance of the left saying let's go over the fiscal cliff and libertarians saying let's go over the fiscal cliff. >> neil: and you pick up the pieces under the new year that you want, is that it? >> ihink that's pretty much what people think, but the reality is, we'll lose 2 million jobs at a time we can little afford it. the economy will go into recession if it's not already there. and that's a cost we can't afford it pay. >> neil: but you could make a political a

. i think you heard john boehner say that. we've had votes in the senate where we've gotten rid of tax credits. i think that's a given. >> we need the republicans to do in 2012 what we did in 2010. we hear the mandate continue to cut spending, but they have to hear the than date real revenues not like dynamic scoring. >> and here's what happens if no agreement is reached before january 1st.bush tax rates expire. emergency unemployment benefits will end. the 2011 payroll tax holiday expires. and $984 billion in cuts will be triggered. joining me now, andy sullivan and sher a tupletts. what do you expect to come out of the meeting friday and will any real progress made? >> oh, no, but i think the optics will be important. there will beside by side getting their picture taken and i think this will reassure voters and most importantly investors that they are serious about the problem and they want t to get something done before the end of the year. they've pretty much gotten a free ride from the markets. everybody knew this was coming up, but interest rates have remained low and the stock

. >> you can see how he responds to john boehner, said this week, signaled that he's willing to accept maybe the government will collect some more revenue, but let's not raise tax rate. let's get rid of deduction and benefits of simplicity there and thinking about trying to get economic growth. i think if the president responds by saying let's do a bipartisan reform instead of demanding trillions in new tax revenue, then i think that would be a good thing. >> paul: one of the thing boehner, my sources are saying, they would like to do is to get the president extend the bush tax rates for another year to avoid an immediate blow to the economy and time to negotiate a larger tax reform and entitlement deal. if the president insists, said, look, i litigated taxes in the election, tax rates are going up right away and automatically are and i'm going to insist on that, then do you think we're back to the barricades? >> that's a sign that the first term was instructive and the des moines register was not, that he's going to stay to the left. he's also, he's facing another eform must challenge
or in on the discussions on that, but as far as the different roles are concerned, this is house speaker john boehner's thing. he runs the house. he's t top republican negotiator in this so he's the one who goes to the white house, and he's the one who has to tell them what passes the senate or house. neil: very true. you don't think about that, but it's who controls the boyds, republicans control the house. boehner is the powerful player here. as always, thank you. rich edson at the white house, and craig smith in arizona. now, craig, i could be overanalyzing, but i'm beginning to see the inkling of and structuring of is the deal that would potentially save face on republicans on revenues saying it might not be a raise, but cling loopholes and that thing. the president might buy that, might not, but because they left out specifics and boehner left out specifics yesterday, me thinks there is wiggle rooms on revenues. on spending, then, up to the republicans to see the democrats open to reigning in the growth of the entitlements so you don't throw granny off the cliff. how do you score the likelihood
for our country. >> later john maynard told diane mostr he ishe personbable, responsible dianen boehner told mostr he is the personble, responsible presidentn and the knows that. and he knows that he and john can work together. -- john boehner can work tother. end of the year. will we ach a compromise before then, charles? a i do not thinink it will be comprehensive compromise. tohthink they will be able patch something together. tohink they will be able reformn it true tax sometime next year. someththing along the lines the obama appointed. i think they will get past the cliff. if he insists raising rates, he will be stymied. >> what is the message? >> it is a mixed message. i think we all agree the presidente of the taxesessage is we raise on those earning over $250,000. mitt romney pledged to repeal obamacare. these are the e essential points of their candidacies. i think he can point to that. but at the same time, he has to dealith the republican house and john painter has to deal with the republican house. beingoehnhner -- he is not humbled by saying that he is best that the presi
are not negotiable. >> with the house, we know that, he has to deal with the house. john boehner, the speaker of the house, also talked about the fiscal cliff and hinted for compromise. you got to listen carefully to see the compromise that could be coming. let's listen. >> it's clear, there are a lot of loopholes in the tax code, both corporate and personal. it's also clear that there are all kinds of deductions, some of which make sense, others don't. everything, everything on the revenue side and the spending side has to be looked at. >> anyway, senator chuck schumer this morning suggested that the right wing might be more willing to accept compromise now. it's been helpful. let's watch. >> boehner wants to compromise, that's why he gave that speech. boehner's not a hard right guy, he's a mainstream conservative. i think he's going to help. the hard right is chastened in a lot of ways. >> in south carolina, a republican, jeff duncan, who quoted him as follows, when i look at the results of the election, congressman duncan says, it becomes clear to me that the house is now the last line of
at the end of the year unless congress acts. president obama and john boehner picked up where they left off in dueling public appearances where both sounded conciliatory but didn't seem to budge much. you must add to the president's to-do list one more thing. he needs a cia director after general david petraeus resigned, admitting to an extramarital affair. joining me now is new jersey democrat senator robert menendez. and in new york congressman peter king who is chairman of the house homeland security committee. good morning, senator. it's good to see you. let me start out with the petraeus matter. do you believe that this leaves a big hole in military intelligence operations or can they carry on smoothly? >> well, mike morell who is the second in charge is an excellent individual, has the president's confidence and can carry on in the interim. obviously, general petraeus was a tremendous asset at the cia. it's unfortunate. i respect his decision under the circumstances. and i'm sure the president will now seek out a new cia director. but in the interim i believe the kgs can continue to f
they already agreed to that. i think you heard john boehner say that already. we've had votes in the senate where we've actually gotten rid of tax credits. i think that's a given. and i think the vast majority of americans agree with that. the question is how do you do that and how do you allow taxes to rise at the same time you fix the real problem? and the real problem is uncontrolled entitlement spending and a government that has grown massively. not just under this administration, under republican administration. >> let me turn to senator schumer on this point. >> so you have to approach both sides of it. >> let me turn to senator schumer. i'm going to ask you the same question. if the mandate is compromised, what do democrats have to be prepared to accept as a painful outcome in order to achieve compromise? >> well, i agree with you, the mandate is compromise. that's why we have a divided house and senate. and i think if the house stands for anything it's cut government spending, as tom coburn said, and i think we're going to have to do more of it. we heard the mandate in 2010, where i

? john boehner indicated, revenue is possible, but we're not raising tax rates. where is there compromise? >> i think where there's going to be a compromise on taxes, this be would be a good thing on the economy, might exchange lower tax rates in return for a reduction in all the loopholes that as it is distort economic activity. so if boehner were able to achieve that kind of compromise, that's one that the republicans could be pleased with. the bush tax cuts are gone, they're expiring, and the president said that 250,000 below, he wants that extended, but for those making more than 250, will the bush tax cuts come to an end? >> i don't think so. i think actually the they won't come to an end because the democrats don't want major reduction in spending, if you hit the cliff, the spending would go down and politicians love to spend money. an extension of the bush tax cuts, less we're blessed by the relatively few, jeff baso, the late steve jobs, you want to remove the barriers to their production, not raise them. >> mike: john, we're not going over this cliff, are we. >> there's no way we
gigot, house speaker john boehner, sean hannity evolved on the issue of immigration. two questions, will it happen now and is that enough for the republican party? >> it's not the only thing they need to do. it's an important threshold issue not just for hispanic voters but for asian voters. it has shrunk to 33% in 2008. 26% this time. why should chinese americans vote so much less for republicans than eight years ago? >> what is the answer? >> the answer is they're getting a message, you're really not welcome. part of that is the threshold question of immigration. look, if the iceberg breaks up on immigration, this sort on the conservative part of the republican coalition, there's been an unwillingness to consider immigration reform. it's been closed off. mitt romney hasn't been willing to address that. self-deportation. >> i don't think though that the democrats have done a terrific amount in that area either. i went to the president obama's speech on immigration -- neither party has done anything. >> greta, don't forget it took the organization, the organizing of the dreamers to

. >> i would even say keep these conversations loud and public and also show john boehner, if john boehner is going to be blaming everybody else but john boehner for being owe not being able to poll this red ants that infested his regions what can't get done, let's just see what that's about. because this is a democracy. this isn't the president's mandate. it's everybody's mandate. >> i want to set two things next to each other. on the one hand, we had a letter in the washington post to the president and to the congress from sort of the group that had supported the president, big labor and others and they made it very clear. the 2012 elections are over. the american people have spoken. we've voted for the middle class, putting people back to work and not job killing budget cuts and not attacking social security and medicare and medicate. this is what they're saying. on the other hand, we have boehner who won a majority in the house of representatives. here's what he said thursday to diane sawyer about raising taxes. >> is it on the table to talk about it? >> i made clear -- >> the
quo. asking the two to work together as house speaker john boehner put it the day after the election. >> the american people have spoken. they reelected president obama. they have again reelected a republican majority in the house of representatives. if there's a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges we all face as a nation. >> the other way to interpret the results is to see them as a resounding liberal governance. a larger and apparently more democratic majority in the senate. it's how harry reid framed the results. >> we had an overwhelming re-election of the president. we picked up seats in the senate and the house. it's not the status quo. >> one thing is clear. it will not look like any congress we have ever had. the most stunning exacten is the diminishing number of white men in house of representatives. in the current house, white men were 88% compared to 53% in the caucus. for the first time ever in history, white men will make up just a minority, 46% of the democratic caucus. women will make u
been up to. he goes on to say, if there's a mandate in yesterday's results, said speaker john boehner on yesterday, it's a mandate to find a way for us to work together. republicans, he said, are willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions to get a bipartisan agreement over the budget. your thoughts about what robert reich had to say and what the speaker is saying. guest: well, you know, i think that we need to find some common ground. obviously we're facing this fiscal cliff, so we have to find some common ground. everybody's talking about revenue, nobody's talking about cutting. that's really what we need to be focusing on, because you can tax people into oblivion. at the end of the day, you're going to run out of their money, and you've got to cut the spending. you can't tax enough to cover the spending. so i want to hear about the cutting as well, and i think that's probably what most people, you know, in the tea party movement, they would agree with me on. but what i will say is that while, you know, he says that the electorate is not happy with what the tea party mo
? then what happens in the house? there are two questions and with john boehner. is he willing to go in and legislate, especially if he gets a major concessions from the president? in my gut, the answer is yes. can he bring his caucus along? yes, a few of the leading to party leaders were defeated -- tea party members were defeated, but they are still as conservative as they were before last night. we have some issues that could really divide us, like immigration with the president will be moving ahead quickly. the 10 to one of the old days said they would not accept, it may not be 10 to one come and maybe four to one or five to one, but they will get 80% of what they want. can they say yes to only 80%? the final one is the supreme court. what happens if ensign and scalia retires? forget -- antonin scalia retires? forget ginsberg. what happens if obama will appoint the first asian-american to the court? i cannot give you the answers. we will see a lot of bloodletting. goingave no idea what's to happen because i do not think president obama told us what he plans to do. i was very curi
. >> chris: let's talk about taxes that got most of the attention. congressman van hollen, john boehner offered a compromise this week where he said yes, i am willing to put more revenue on the table but through closing deductions, ending loopholes, not through raising rates. can you accept a compromise as part of this whole deal that doesn't raise the bush tax rate on the wealthy? >> well, here is the issue. how much revenue are we going to generate part of a balanced package? i take my lead on this from simpson-bowles and their framework. in their framework, they assume the amount of revenue as if you started tax reform from a 3% rate. that is part -- 39% rate. that's part of their built-in assumption. i am all for doing tax reform. the issue is from what starting point. the simpson-bowles starting point which assumes the revenue from 39% is the right way to go to get the mix that they got in hitting their deficit reduction target. but look, if what the speaker boehner was saying is that he is truly willing to get what we consider congressional budget office revenue, we can work with
we have seen john boehner say he did not think major decision should be made by outgoing members to of ever been outbid by the public or are retiring. he is pushing for something like a bridge to get us past the fiscal cliff and into next year. 2013 will be the year for these big deals on entitlements, taxes, and spending. >> the president has invited the leaders to the white house. what else is happening in this coming week that people need to know about? >> the republicans will have their leadership elections. we are expecting that john boehner will remain the speaker and erick cantor will be the number two. there is not any major legislation on the floor of the house that we are expecting. >> the president is speaking again on wednesday on this and other issues. >> and using his post as the election pulpit to start the process. >> absolutely. >> a thank you for being here. an interesting couple weeks ahead for us to watch. >> tomorrow, roger daltrey and pete townshend of the who will talk about their program on childhood and young adult cancer. onid cameron's speech foreign po
that will continue. >> chris: that was house speaker john boehner, acknowledging republicans have to retool after a disappointing election. and we're back now with the panel. laura, how much trouble is the g.o.p. in? >> well, it depends on how they react to this. if the reaction to the election is let's dig into core principles and remake them, the g.o.p. will lose more seats in 2014, if it is a bidding war with republicans and this and that group, latinos and women and we'll give you more stuff and give you amnesty-plus, to keep in line with panel-plus, it will not work but the republicans have to take a lesson from -- i hate to bring it up -- when goldwater was shellacked in 1964, the conservatives got together and said we'll figure out how to sell this idea of economic conservatism and the conservative framework to new voters and they went into the south and transformed mississippi and alabama and all of these places where people never voted republican before. it took time. and it took a lot of introspection, but it wasn't them deciding, oh, our entire framework of ideas is wrong. it depends h
